(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: 2021 Mar

Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CVox3)

History: The meteorite was purchased from a group of meteorites hunters in Nouadhibou, Mauritania, in March, 2021.

Physical characteristics: Many grayish to light brownish fragments some of which partly covered by fusion crust.

Petrography: Carbonaceous chondrite composed of chondrules (mean diameter about 0.9 mm; up to 1.5 mm sized), CAIs (up to 2 mm sized), and olivine amoeboids all set into a fine-grained brownish matrix. Most chondrules show reddish staining due to terrestrial alteration. Opaque phases are sulfides and rare metal.

Geochemistry: Ni in sulfides 22.7±0.3 wt%, N=5

Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CVox3). Oxidized subgroup based on high concentrations of Ni in sulfides (Gattacceca et al., 2020)
